Living Homes C6 house debuts; part of new Make It Right collaboration + featuring a door lever designed by Bill McDonough
LivingHomes®, a premier developer of modern, sustainably designed, prefabricated homes, announces the launch and national availability of the new LivingHome C6. The C6 is the first LivingHome that is affordably priced and comfortably sized for a small family or couple.
The C6 was designed as part of a new partnership with Make It Right, a nonprofit founded by Brad Pitt and renowned architect William McDonough to build 150 Cradle to Cradle® inspired LEED Platinum homes in New Orleans’ Lower Ninth Ward, the neighborhood hardest hit by Hurricane Katrina. A portion of the proceeds from the sale of each C6 will help support the efforts of Make It Right.
“We’re excited to partner with LivingHomes to help make well-designed, sustainable houses more affordable and available in other parts of the country,” said Tom Darden, Make It Right’s Executive Director.
The C6, built by Cavco, a nationwide leader in the systems building of prefabricated homes, is available in most states for $185,000. The C6 can be fully constructed in less than two months and installed on-site in one day. Consumers can get complete information about the C6 and create a Virtual LivingHome C6, with their choice of finishes and fixtures, at www.livinghomes.net.
The C6 features a new Cradle to Cradle® inspired door handle designed by William McDonough and LivingHomes. It is coated in zinc, which means users get to touch a vital mineral every time they open the front door.
